This fully restored, early production car chassis 000175 was originally sent to the United States of America before returning ‘home’ to Germany in 2012. Changing hands in early 2015, the new custodian would start a two year adventure converting the car to a correct European specification, culminating in March 2017 with a confirmed Classic Data Condition 1 (Zustand 1) vehicle. Literally hundreds of hours have gone into to this no-compromise, frame off restoration culminating in the wonderful example we see today. We’ve inserted just a few restoration pictures selected from hundreds available, but those ‘in the know’ will quickly recognise the level of detail taken during this restoration. Restored by Fm Wallascheck in Germany, the car was restored for the company’s owner who has enjoyed the vehicle for the last couple of years. Now embarking on a new project (another SL Pagoda) it’s expected to be ready in late 2020.
